      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

My father thinks that you can not use treble hooks on tip ups in MN but I have heard from other fishermen that this is ok. can't find anything in the regulations that says this is not allowed. just wondering if anyone uses them or knows the rule. -thanks

Page 10 of the 2007 MN Fishing Regs, the first bullet statement under Angling:

"Anglers may use only one hook. An artificial lure is considered one hook. A treble hook, when not part of an artificial lure, is considered three hooks and is not legal..."

If it is part of a lure you can use it. If you are using a treble hook by itself that is not legal. I bought a Mad Dog treble hook that had a red bead with white dots on it a couple years ago. The idea was that it is a "lure". I have never used it and been checked to see how that would play out.

So a plain treble hook with a minnow is not allowed but if I put a buckshot rattle spoon (which has a treble hook) down with a minnow on a tip up, then I'm OK

Correct. Most people who use trebles on tip-ups in Minnesota add a bead and a very small spinner (the type you get with Swedish Pimples) above the hook but below the sinker. Makes it a legal "lure."
